It's All About Library InstructionEdit

This is the perfect opportunity for librarians who teach in higher education (or who might be teaching in their future library careers) to come together to engage in participant-driven conversations about instruction topics that matter to them. Welcome, too, are school librarians interested in discussing college & school library instruction relationships - or public librarians interested in similar ways to engage with their local college libraries.

The UN-conference format is being used to facilitate those participant-driven conversations. What is an unconference? One in which the content isn't planned ahead of time - attendees propose the topics they want to discuss the day of the conference. It is, in other words, held freestyle. See: [1].
